Product Review: Gommage 305 by Yon-Ka

What can I say? I just love to exfoliate. And while Origins Modern Friction may have changed my life, Gommage 305 ($33) by Yon-Ka is my latest love. It isn't gritty or abrasive, so my sensitive skin didn't get scratched and irritated. In fact, it made my face feel incredibly soft, smooth, and clear for the next few days. Gommage 305 also hydrates your skin, and unlike Modern Friction, it's mild enough to use on your eyelids.

This product is a clear gel that works like a mask. To use, simply cleanse your skin and apply a thick layer to your face and neck. Leave it on for about five minutes until the gel feels tacky; it won't get hard and dry like a clay mask. To remove, roll your fingertips over your face in small outwards and upwards circles until it's all peeled off. Lastly, use a damp cotton towel to clean up your skin.

To read about the only down side to Gommage 305,

Unfortunately, the smell of this product is pretty rank. To be perfectly honest, it reminded me of a cross between bleach and urine. Sounds good, eh? I am actually surprised about the stench, considering that all of the other Yon-Ka products I've tried smell fragrant and spa-quality aromatherapeutic. Fortunately, the smell wears off after about two minutes, and the results are totally worth it!

I have it on my face right now, and I would say if you've ever had a horse, you will recognize the horse sweat and linement smell, lol - but it's really not that bad. All Yonka products are amazing. I've never been disappointed.

Oh my goodness...funny about the scent! It sounds like it has great benefits though.

So, I just HAVE to ask: has anyone tried sleeping in it as a night-mask, the way the package directions say? I wonder if it will stay on or peel off and leave the bleachy-pee smell on the bed linens?

Not a bad price at all.

I love that theres no grit or drying like a mask. I need to check this stuff out. I just explained to a girlfriend who came back from Mexico peeling about the benefits of exfoliation!

Eww to the smell. Gentle enough to use on eyelids, eh? I don't know if bleach/urine scent is worth it.

It's $3 cheaper than Modern Friction, but the smell sounds scary and I'm not so sure about a mask that peels off like white glue. I'll keep my burning eyes, I think. :)
